Why use a stair edging? Reduce accidents on stairs by:

Providing slip-resistance at the edge of the step

Providing a visual contrast to highlight the edge of the step

Protect the step edge and surrounding floorcoverings Reduce maintenance costs Improve the aesthetics of a building Comply with the guidance in

Approved Documents K and M of The Building Regulations 2010,

BS 8300:2009+A1:2010, BS 9266:2013 and BS 5395-1:2010 in line with the

Don’t take the risk!

Step 1 Choose the right stair edging and fixing method for the step Specification Guidelines BS8300:2009+A1:2010 refers to research undertaken by BRE. This research shows that if the depth of the tread is less than 300mm the risk of an overstep is increased. A stair nosing that wraps around the riser will reduce this risk by increasing the slip-resistance at the step edge. Gradus stair nosings offer a wide range of profiles that satisfy all the latest building standards and guidelines and accommodate a wide range of floorcoverings.

A secure fixing between the stair edging and the step is essential to ensuring a safe installation. The stair edging profile, type and condition of the substrate and the application will affect the type of fixing method required. Mechanical and adhesive fixing (see fig 2 above) A combination of screw fixings, cartridge adhesive and screw head cover plugs are used to achieve a secure fixing.

To ensure the correct installation method is selected further information can be found in our installation instructions available at www.gradus.com

Shape of Step Select the correct stair nosing for the shape of the step – this should be a tight fit to the step to ensure that the profile does not lift or rock during use. There are four main stair nosing shapes to choose from (see below). Kinked face profiles can be used on square and some rake back stairs. Square

Rake Back

Kinked Face

Bullnose

Section

1 Gauge The gauge (thickness) of the stair nosing should be a flush finish to the floorcovering to avoid a trip hazard being created. When used with soft floorcoverings such as carpet and carpet tile, the gauge should achieve a flush finish with the compressed thickness of the floorcovering. Gradus offers a range of gauges to suit the majority of commercial floorcoverings (see below).

Gauge

Typically used with

Ramp back

No floorcoverings / Resilient floorcoverings – install profile on top of the floorcovering to ensure a safe fit

2mm – 3mm

Resilient floorcoverings

4mm – 5mm

Carpet / Carpet Tile / Resilient floorcoverings with a bevelled underlay (see page 56) in heavy use areas

6mm

Carpet / Carpet Tile

7mm – 10mm

Carpet / Wood / Ceramics / Other heavy duty floorcoverings

10mm – 15mm

Ceramics / Stone / Marble

Tread (going) The depth of the tread (going) will also have an influence on the stair nosing selected. A study conducted by BRE found that slips on stairs are often as a result of an overstep, especially on narrow treads (less than 300mm). To help reduce the risk of slips in an overstep situation, the XT stair nosing range incorporates a slip-resistant insert that extends around the leading edge of the profile in line with BRE recommendations. Gradus offers a wide range of profiles to suit different tread sizes:

Single Channel •

Single channel – ideal for use on treads up to 300mm deep

Double Channel •

Double and multiple channels – suitable for stairs with a large going, especially if they are subject to heavy volumes of foot traffic e.g. railway stations, supermarkets, department stores, secondary and further education establishments and major hospitals.

•

When specifying double channel stair nosings, both inserts should be of the same colour and be of a contrasting colour to the surrounding floor finish.

11


Step 2 Select the correct slip-resistance for the conditions Specification Guidelines BS8300:2009+A1:2010, BS 5395-1:2010 and BS 9266:2013 refers to the slip-resistance of surface finishes on stairs. A pendulum test is used to assess slip-resistance and a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of greater than 36 is required in both dry conditions and also when the stairs are at risk of becoming wet through walked in moisture and spillages.

Slip-resistance & Performance An insert provides a surface that creates friction between the sole of the shoe and the step edge, hence providing slip-resistance and reducing the risk of slips on stairs. All Gradus inserts are tested for slip-resistance – see results on page 147. Ensure the required level of slip-resistance is achieved to reduce the risk of slips and falls on stairs by selecting the correct insert for the environment:

12

Interior installations – not always dry conditions. Consider whether there is a risk of the stair nosing becoming wet and select the correct insert accordingly.

Safety flooring – select an insert that matches or improves the slip-resistant qualities of the flooring.

Choose a colour that visually contrasts

Specification Guidelines BS8300:2009+A1:2010, BS 5395-1:2010, BS 9266:2013 & Approved Documents M (ADM) & K (ADK) of The Building Regulations 2010 highlight the need to ensure there is sufficient visual contrast at the step edge, providing a safe environment for all building users. Project Rainbow and ADM recommend that there is at least a 30 point difference between the LRVs of the stair nosing and floorcovering to achieve a suitable contrast.

Visual Contrast Good Visual Contrast Installed with Gradus Stair Nosings All Gradus stair nosing channel and insert colours are measured for LRVs in accordance with BS 8493:2008+A1:2010 to help achieve this difference. Gradus PVC-u Hardnose stair nosings can be selected with the channel and insert in the same colour to provide the ideal solution for creating visual contrast (picture 1), in line with Approved Documents M & K, BS 8300:2009+A1:2010, BS 5395-1:2010 and BS 9266:2013 guidelines.

Partially-sighted People Poor Tonal Contrast

picture 2

It is important to achieve a tonal contrast between the floorcovering and the stair nosing as people with visual impairments may not be able to see some or all colours but can perceive light and dark. The photographs below show that colour contrast (picture 1) visible to fully-sighted people may not always offer a tonal contrast (picture 2) for partiallysighted people.

Stair Edging Colours Insert

The range of stair edging colours from Gradus provides a comprehensive solution allowing specifiers and users to achieve visual contrast in line with recommendations in The Building Regulations 2010 - Approved Document M - “Access to and use of buildings”, BS 8300:2009+A1:2010, BS 9266:2013 & BS 5395-1:2010 (see pages 150-155). The colours have been developed to provide a wide choice of visual contrast with matching colours for both insert and Hardnose channel. All colours have been measured for light reflectance/visual contrast (LRV using the CIE Y value). For guidance on selecting matching channel and insert colours that provide visual contrast on both the tread and riser, see pages 148-150. For channel and insert availability by range see individual profile pages.

Trans-Edge® - Stair Edgings

A range of heavy-duty aluminium stair edgings incorporating an extremely durable, slip-resistant insert material, suitable for external and internal applications such as motorway foot bridges, railway stations, airports, sports stadia, outdoor arenas and heavy industry. Selected TEX stair edgings can also be used with tread plates and sheet material to form a heavy-duty stair and floor system - see pages 32 to 33.

Installation Advice: •

TEX3R - the front insert should always be in a visually contrasting colour to the remaining inserts to ensure definition of the step edge. The remaining inserts must always be of the same colour and ideally match the surrounding floorcovering. The colours selected must contrast by 30 points on the LRV scale - see page 17 for insert LRVs.

TEXE1 - multiple pieces of TEXE1 can be joined together to increase slip-resistance along the tread depth. When using two or more TEXE1 extension profiles, these should be a contrasting colour to the stair edging insert to ensure step edge definition.

Information: •

For guidance on the correct selection of stair edgings see pages 8 to 13.

For larger colour swatches, Light Reflectance Values (LRVs) and NCS references see pages 16 to 17. V  isit: www.gradus.com to download: AutoCAD drawings, Gradus & NBS Specifications, Cleaning & Maintenance, Installation Guidelines and Health & Safety Data Sheets.

Guide to Stair Trims & Welded Corners Description Welded corners are designed to form a neat and attractive edge around the open end of a step by concealing the edge of the floorcovering and stair edging. Welded corners are supplied pre-welded to suit the angle between the riser and tread of the step (78°- 90°). They are available in a variety of gauges to suit different floorcoverings. Welded corners are available with either a fixed flange or separate fixing clips as shown on the opposite page. When selecting the appropriate welded corner the thickness of the screed, the floorcovering and the combined thickness of the stair edging riser and floorcovering must be considered to ensure a neat finish. Profiles are also available in longer lengths to be used as trimming strips on landings etc.

XT range For details on XT side trims and welded corners refer to page 54 (Aluminium and PVC-u Hardnose).

In addition to welded corners a range of specialist stair trims can be found on the following pages (52 to 57).

A

E

Nap Trim Aluminium or bronze nap trims (see page 57) available with or without carpet gripper, butt joint to the back edge of the stair edging to form a neat finish to the floorcovering. Ideal for use with Axminster or other woven backed carpets. The top is closed using a block of wood and a rubber mallet. Fixed with screws and adhesive.

B

C

D

Mitre Joint Welded corners with TC2 clips must be mitred. TAC42, TAXT5212 and TAXT523 should also be mitred.

Type of Jointing

Butt Joint Two adjoining welded corners can be butt jointed for all corners with TC1 clips and fixed tabs (except TAC42).

50

Note To achieve an optimum finish the angle between each riser and tread should be the same. Remedial work may need to be undertaken prior to installation to achieve this.


4 Designs to Choose From Welded Corner with TC1 Clips

Welded corners are fabricated using a trimming strip of the correct gauge to suit the thickness of the floorcovering. Different types of trimming strip can be combined on the tread and riser to accommodate the combined thickness of the floorcovering and riser of the stair edging e.g. TA5B (tread)/TA5 (riser). Welded corners are fixed with a proprietary cartridge adhesive. Note: the use of a latex screed to disguise the fixing flange may be required when using vinyl or linoleum (see page 52).

HT42, HXT42, MT42, TA42, TAC42 and TAXT42 all use the TC1 clip which is adjustable to provide an upstand of 6mm, 8mm or 10mm on the tread or riser. The clip is positioned in one of the grooves using two clips per tread and one per riser and the side trim is then fixed on with proprietary cartridge adhesive. When this has cured the clip is removed. Different clip positions can be used on the tread and riser to allow for the combined thickness of the floorcovering and riser of the stair edging (see page 53).

TAXT5212 and TAXT523 utilise aluminium TC3 clips that slide on to the profile using the locating grooves to form the flange.

Welded Returns & Capped Ends Most stair edgings featured in the Gradus product range can be fabricated to form a neat finish to the open side(s) of the stair in the form of welded returns or capped ends. The diagram below illustrates some examples of the fabrications that are available.

The “hand� (i.e. left or right hand) of the profile is determined from the bottom of a flight of stairs looking up. Stair edgings are also available mitred and welded or capped at both ends.

Bevelled Underlay

BU200

Bevelled underlay is a flexible pvc material used as a diminishing strip and is ideal for building up resilient floorcoverings for use with 5mm stair edgings. This is an ideal solution where a heavy-duty stair edging is required with a resilient floorcovering. Grooves along the length of the underlay provide a straight cutting edge at points where the thickness gives ideal height adjustment. Bevelled underlay is fitted with a proprietary contact adhesive and it is advisable to feather the tapered edge with a thin layer of latex cement.

Diagram shows BU200 bevelled underlay being used to build up a 3.2mm linoleum to ensure a flush finish with the back edge of a G11 stair edging (5mm gauge see page 26).

Description The Gradus Luxury Trim System offers a premium solution for the neat finishing of junctions between flooring materials.

Profiles suitable for interior use

Tops clip in to bases to accommodate a variety of floorcoverings

Installation Advice •

Compressed thickness of carpet should always be a tight fit to the internal gauge of the combined top/base

When installed with natural floorcoverings e.g. ceramics or wood, a suitable gap must be left between the profile base and the flooring to allow for natural expansion

Bases should always be fitted on top of resilient floorcoverings when used in a ramp configuration

Bases should be fitted using cartridge adhesive and screw fixings

The solid brass profiles are available in six opulent metal finishes for use in prestigious applications where luxury floor finishes are installed, from hotels to top-end residential developments. The profiles are available in either a ramp or a twin top configuration with a choice of bases and heights to suit a

Profile Information

Description

Profiles suitable for interior use

Tops can be clipped into bases at variable heights to accommodate a wider range of floorcoverings

ø

D  enotes PVC-u profiles can be curved on-site, see individual profiles for minimum radius

MTS Multi-Trim System is a versatile and simple solution

Installation Advice

for common interfaces between flooring materials.

Compressed thickness of carpet should always be a tight fit to the internal gauge of the combined top / base

When installed with ceramics, wood or wood laminate flooring a suitable gap must be left between the profile base and the flooring to allow for natural expansion

Bases should be fitted using cartridge adhesive and screw fixings

Tops are aluminium or PVC-u and can be clipped into the bases at different heights to accommodate various floorcoverings, offering more flexibility in use. MTS offers a neat finish to commonly found junctions in commercial applications, and is ideal for use with floorcoverings that require room for expansion such as wood, wood laminate, ceramics and terrazzo.

Colour

Suitable for use in medium pedestrian and trolley traffic

applications, e.g. high street shops, schools, hotels and offices.

For larger colour swatches see page 60  TS PVC-u bases contain up to M 100% recycled content.

Trans-Edge® - Trims

Profile Information •

P  rofiles suitable for interior use

Choice of ramp or flat design

Installation Advice Description

A  luminium channels are fixed using screws and cartridge adhesive. Elite insert is then fitted into channel to allow concealed fixings

If used with carpet, compressed thickness of carpet should always be a tight fit to the internal gauge of the profile

When installed with ceramics, wood or wood laminate flooring a suitable gap must be left between the profile and the flooring to allow for natural expansion

Ramp profiles should always be fitted on top of resilient floorcoverings

Trans-Edge trims have been designed for use in the most demanding environments where frequent heavy foot and wheeled traffic can be expected, e.g. railway stations, airports, transport interchanges, department stores and hospitals. Trans-Edge trims comprise an aluminium base channel with a choice of slip-resistant Elite inserts (ordered separately). Standard interior insert is available for interior dry conditions. Xtra-grip insert is available for interior areas that are at risk of becoming wet and therefore pose a higher risk of slip.

All Gradus products comply with REACH Regulation (EC) 1907-2006 - see page 4 for further details.

Transition T Profiles Used for joining different floorcoverings of the same, or slightly differing, heights. The design of the T profiles allows slight imperfections in joints and cuts to be hidden, and enables a gap between floor finishes to be incorporated during installation to allow for natural expansion in flooring materials such as ceramics and wood. Profiles can be curved on-site using a bending machine for shaped edges and inlays (see page 84). T profiles are fitted after the floorcoverings have been installed, making them ideal for use when the installation of the floorcoverings is undertaken by different trades (e.g. ceramic contractors and flooring contractors) where the trims cannot be fixed until both floors have been completed.

Gradus offers solutions to suit most contract applications, from ‘critical’ clean areas where a homogeneous finish is essential such as hospital wards, treatment rooms, and food & pharmaceutical environments, through to commercial office, education or retail environments where functionality needs to be combined with aesthetics.

Healthcare, food & pharmaceutical and education environments in particular benefit from the use of pvc skirtings that can be welded to resilient floorcoverings in order to create completely impervious seals to meet cleaning and hygiene requirements. For further guidance on the use of pvc skirtings in healthcare environments refer to: Health Technical Memorandum (HTM): Flooring 61 – 3 Design Guidance, Skirtings 3.13 - 3.19.

Materials & Profiles Options Selecting the correct type of skirting profile will ensure that product performance matches the environment requirements and will result in a functional, low maintenance alternative to traditional skirtings.

Pvc Skirtings

Stratum Pvc Skirting

Set-in – typically used with resilient floorcoverings, this type of skirting is welded to the floorcovering in order to create an impervious seal. Ideal for critical clean areas (e.g. treatment rooms, pharmaceutical production) or areas subject to wet cleaning (e.g. school and hospital corridors). Selected set-in skirtings are available in 15m coils in order to reduce the number of vertical joints required.

 n alternative to traditional timber skirting, this 10mm thick A skirting provides the look of painted wood whilst offering a low maintenance solution. Ideal for creating a neat finish in non-critical clean areas, and in all contract environments where ongoing maintenance and aesthetics are important factors.

Sit-on – typically used with hard floorcoverings. Ideal for use in areas where a neat, clean finish is required but an impervious seal is not required e.g. general circulation areas in schools and hospitals.

Metal Skirtings

Flat – used primarily with textile floorcoverings to form a neat, low-maintenance alternative to timber skirting.  apping Strips & Cove Formers – used when floorcoverings C are continued up the wall. Cove former ensures a consistent cove is achieved and supports the floorcovering at a weak point. Capping strips provide a neat finish where the floorcovering stops.

Aesthetics Gradus skirtings & cappings are available in a range of colours and finishes to complement most interior environments. In addition, the use of a skirting that contrasts in colour and luminance with the floorcovering can assist visually impaired people to determine the borders of the room. As a guide, skirtings should either match the wall colour, or provide a complete contrast with both the wall and floor. For further details on visual contrast see pages 149-151.

Stratum is a cost effective alternative to finished timber skirting it utilises up to 80% recycled pvc in its construction and is suitable for all areas that require a high quality finish to be maintained through the life of the building

E  liminates the need for processes normally associated with wood skirting such as sanding, priming, filling and painting

applications including education, healthcare and commercial office. Life cycle analysis shows Stratum is a cost effective alternative to wood skirtings. The smooth matt finish is resistant to stains, dents and scratches, and will not splinter, chip and crack like traditional wood skirtings,

Installation Advice

Life cycle costs •

The tough decorative wear layer on Stratum requires no further surface treatments to protect the finish and offers a low maintenance alternative to traditional timber skirting where the life cycle costs of redecoration can be expensive.

Typical example: timber skirting is typically redecorated once in a 10 year period – total expenditure is approximately 50% more than material and labour costs spent on installing Stratum. The saving will be greater if redecoration is required more often.

Tread Alert® - Tactile Surface

Dennis Gilbert/View.

Description

Tile Information

Tread Alert is a rubber tile with raised ribs that acts as

Tile size 400mm x 400mm. Gauge 8.5mm nominal.

a tactile warning surface for visually impaired people

B  order Tile (TAFB) - used to provide a finishing edge; 2.5mm thick with a 6mm raised rib at 50mm centres rounded towards one edge of the tile

F  ield Tile (TAFT) - butt jointed to form a continuous run; 2.5mm thick with a 6mm raised rib at 50mm centres across the full width of the tile

Suitable for interior dry conditions. Tread Alert should not be used in internal areas that may be subject to wetness

Tread Alert tiles should visually contrast with the surrounding floorcovering to ensure clear visibility (see Diagrams 1 and 2 opposite).

Consideration must be given to the frictional characteristics of Tread Alert and the surrounding floorcovering. Dramatic changes in frictional resistance, such as when used in conjunction with carpet, require special consideration (see Diagram 2 opposite). For further details contact Technical Support

to recognise a change in level. Tread Alert has been designed to meet the criteria for tactile surfaces as stipulated in the DTLR publication ‘Guidance on the use of tactile paving surfaces’. When used correctly Tread Alert helps to ensure the provision of an inclusive environment as recommended in BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 (see page 151) and the Joint Committee on Mobility of Blind and Partially Sighted People.

Profile Information

Cable Ducts combine the principle of Gradus Clip-Top

• Reduces the risk of accidents for pedestrian traffic by providing a safe link between floorcoverings

functionality with the added benefit of securing loose or trailing light duty cables such as computer cables. The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 recommends that “floors should be suitable, in good condition and free of obstructions. Traffic routes should be organised so that people can circulate safely”. Trailing cables should be avoided, and where appropriate the use of cable ducts can help to securely fix cables and prevent accidents, whilst also preventing damage to vital cables.

Cleaning & Maintenance

6 A planned cleaning and maintenance programme is crucial to help maintain the performance and visual appearance of Gradus stair edgings and to maximise the lifespan of the products. Trained cleaning staff or a reputable contract cleaner should be used. Gradus has worked with Selden Research to undertake extensive testing on all Gradus stair edgings. As a result, the method of cleaning and a range of cleaning products have been recommended for use with Gradus stair edgings in a variety of environments. Cleaning and maintenance information for all Gradus stair edgings is available from: www.gradus.com

For further information about recommended cleaning products, including instructions for use and COSHH data sheets, contact: Selden Research Limited, Staden Business Park, Buxton, Derbyshire SK17 9RZ Tel: 01298 26226 Email: gradus@selden.co.uk Website: www.selden.co.uk

Specification Guidelines Colour & Contrast / Light Reflectance Values Colour and contrast within the built environment affects accessibility of all building users, in particular those with a visual impairment.

Project Rainbow A research project carried out by Reading University in conjunction with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (GDBA) and ICI Paints first examined the use of colour contrast to aid navigation around the building and identified that highlighting critical surfaces and special features can provide the basis for wayfinding for visually impaired people. The ‘Colour Contrast & Perception’ document produced by Reading University uses light reflectance values (LRVs) to measure colour and contrast in products/surfaces and determines whether or not a suitable contrast has been achieved between surfaces. The findings from Project Rainbow identified the following:

Special Features: Identified as areas that need to be highlighted to allow a building to be used effectively by visually impaired people, i.e. stair edgings, handrails and door opening furniture. ‘Special features are additional areas, smaller that critical features, that need to be highlighted to allow the building to be used more easily by visually impaired people. Such features include sanitary ware, handrails, door handles, finger plates, switches, socket outlets, and stair nosing etc, all of which should be contrasted against the background against which they will be seen. Smaller items such as these will need a greater colour difference from their surroundings in order to be identified.’

Trim: ‘Special attention is needed to those items used in an internal environment to improve the decorative appeal and overall finish of an interior. Such items, which include coving, skirting, architrave, dado rail etc, should be decorated in colours used on larger critical surfaces.’

Critical surface: patterned carpet and no stair edgings - staircase looks like a ramp

Special features: stair edgings are a different colour and luminance to the flooring to define step edges

Special features: skirting is the same colour as the wall

BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 and The Building Regulations 2010: Approved Document M British Standard BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 states that light reflectance values (LRVs) are used to assess visual contrast using the method of measurement detailed in BS 8493:2008+A1:2010. Approved Documents M (ADM) & K (ADK) directly refers to colour and contrast in the definitions section, stating: ‘Contrast visually, when used to indicate the visual perception of one element of the building, or fitting within the building, against another means that the difference in light reflectance value between the two surfaces is greater than 30 points.’ ADM then refers to Colour, Contrast & Perception - Design Guidance for Internal Built Environments, Reading University (Project Rainbow).

148


Light Reflectance Values (LRVs) explained Reflectance is the proportion of light that a surface reflects compared to the amount of light that falls on the surface. An LRV is a value given to a surface to denote the amount of light reflected. Therefore, as many people with a visual impairment can perceive light and dark, LRVs are a suitable method to measure contrast. LRVs are marked on a scale of 1 to 100 depending on the percentage of light reflected. Dark, matt and/or textured surfaces absorb a large amount of light and, therefore, have low reflectance values. On the other hand, light, glossy and/or smooth surfaces reflect the majority of light that falls on them and have high reflectance values.

Light Reflectance Scale

Black 0

White 100

In order to achieve a suitable contrast between different surfaces, Project Rainbow and ADM recommend that there is at least a 30 point (not 30%) difference in the LRVs of the two surfaces.

How to Measure LRVs The British Standard BS 8493:2008+A1:2010 specifies the method of test to determine the light reflectance value (LRV) of different surfaces of materials, including preparation of specimens in standardised conditions and results put into a test report. All relevant Gradus products have been measured using the CIE Y value and a test report is available upon request. Previous to this standard being published, two widely used methods of measurement had been used - the CIE L value (fluorescent light) and the CIE Y value (natural daylight), causing confusion and potentially dangerous specifications. This standard has adopted the CIE Y value as the single consistent method of measurement for LRVs that is to be used across all industries.

What the colour & contrast guidelines mean for Gradus flooring accessories: Stair Edgings BS 8300:2009+A1:2010: ‘Each step nosing should incorporate a permanently contrasting continuous material for the full width of the stair on both the tread and the riser to help blind and partially sighted people appreciate the extent of the stair and identify individual treads. The material should be 50mm to 65mm on the tread and 30mm to 55mm on the riser, and should contrast visually with the remainder of the tread and riser.’ ADM: ‘All nosings are made apparent by means of a permanently contrasting material 55mm wide on both the tread and the riser.’ Colour, Contrast & Perception (Project Rainbow): ‘The nosing of every step in a flight of stairs should be adequately colour or luminance contrasted with the remainder of the step and the floor coverings adjacent to the top and bottom of the flight.’

Section

Tactile Warning Tile BS 8300:2009+A1:2010: ‘To give advance warning of a step, tactile paving with a corduroy hazard warning surface should be provided at the top and bottom of each flight. Where the approach to the stair is wider than the flight, the tactile surface should extend beyond the line of each edge of the flight.’ Colour, Contrast & Perception (Project Rainbow): ‘Colour or luminance contrast of tactile warning floor coverings at the top and bottom of each flight (of stairs) will also assist in the identification of an imminent potential hazard.’

6

Skirtings BS 8300:2009+A1:2010: ‘To avoid giving the wrong impression about the size of a room, skirtings should have the same LRV as the wall so that the junction between the skirting and the floor marks the extent of the room.’ Colour, Contrast & Perception (Project Rainbow): ‘Skirting should be either decorated the same colour as the wall, the same colour as the floor or, if different to one or the other or both, must be decorated in a colour which highlights even further the junction.’ Permission to reproduce extracts from BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 is granted by BSI.

Specification Guidelines The Building Regulations and British Standards specifying the right Gradus product The Building Regulations and British Standards are designed to ensure the optimum specification of products through a combination of legislative requirements and guidance. The following extracts have been taken from The Building Regulations 2010 and British Standard BS 8300:2009+A1:2010, BS 9266:2013, BS 5395-1:2010 and show how Gradus products can be used to help satisfy these requirements, and help achieve an inclusive environment in line with the Equality Act 2010. For further details on this or any other aspect of The Building Regulations and British Standards contact Gradus Technical Services on 01625 428922. Guidance varies internationally, please refer to the relevant countries' building standards (or equivalent) before specification. Extracts shown below represent examples of good practice.

BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 Guidance on Stair Edgings 5.9.5 Identification and slip resistance of nosings Each step nosing should incorporate a permanently contrasting continuous material for the full width of the stair on both the tread and the riser to help blind and partially sighted people appreciate the extent of the stair and identify individual treads 1 . The material should be 50 mm to 65 mm on the tread and 30mm to 55mm on the riser, and should contrast visually with the remainder of the tread and riser 2 . NOTE 1 A nosing that wraps around the riser might assist blind or partially sighted people

3.

NOTE 2 A proprietary nosing can provide a durable solution that satisfies both visual contrast and slip resistance criteria (see BRE IP 15/03 [13]) 3 . The whole tread or the nosing should incorporate slip-resistant material, starting as close as practicable to the front edge of the nosing and extending the full width of the tread 3 . NOTE 3 Guidance on slip resistance of surfaces is given in Annex E. 1 All Gradus stair edging colours have been measured to provide Light Reflectance Values (LRVs)* in order to provide the specifier with information to ensure that suitable contrast is achieved with the surrounding stair material. PVC-u Hardnose stair edgings can provide an ideal solution as channel and insert colours can be matched to contrast with the tread and riser (see pages 38 to 43.

150


* These values have been determined using the CIE Y value, in accordance with BS 8493:2008+A1:2010 – see pages 148 to 149 for further details. The profile dimensions stated are guidance only and other factors should be taken into consideration when specifying stair edgings such as step dimension and type and frequency of traffic. However, a large proportion of Gradus stair edgings fall between these dimensions stated, including the XT range (see pages 19 to 20 and 39 to 40).

 2

The XT range of stair edgings features a slip-resistant pvc insert that extends around the leading edge of the profile to ensure that foot contact is always made with the slip-resistant element of the stair edging, providing the ideal solution for reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls on stairs in line with BRE. The XT range is available in aluminium (see pages 19 to 20) and PVC-u Hardnose (see pages 39 to 40).

Surface finishes

The surface materials used for internal steps and stairs should be chosen to be easy to maintain and as slip-resistant as possible, especially if surfaces are likely to become wet due to location or use, or if spillage occurs. NOTE Advice and further references on slip resistance of surfaces is given in Annex E.

 choice of slip-resistant insert materials is available for all Gradus stair edgings. Xtra-grip and Xtra-grip Plus inserts have been A specifically designed to reduce the risk of slip in internal wet areas or where spillages are likely to occur (see page 12 for advice on specifying the most suitable insert).

Annex E Slip potential characteristics of treads, ramp surfaces and floor finishes E.2

Slip resistance

The following indices are used to indicate the slipperiness of surfaces: a) pendulum test values (PTVs) obtained using a pendulum tester in line with BS 7976-2; b) surface micro-roughness (Rz) measurements using a stylus instrument in accordance with BS 1134-1.

Where slip resistance is required for nosings and treads, the slip resistance needs to be the equivalent to that expected for level surfaces. A PTV greater than 36 is considered to be suitable, as pushing and turning are unlikely on stairs. On existing nosings, the slip resistance of step nosings are generally expressed by their Rz roughness value as PTV is difficult to measure. In such cases a roughness Rz value of 20 µm is recommended.

 ll Gradus stair edging inserts are independently tested for slip-resistance by the Health & Safety Laboratory using the A pendulum test – all inserts have a low slip potential (inserts measured in dry conditions - PTV of between 66 and 71; inserts measured in wet conditions – PTV of between 53 and 64). All inserts are also tested for wear, surface roughness, chemical resistance and bacterial/fungal resistance (see page 147 for further details).

Guidance on Tread Alert 5.9.6 Landings To give advance warning of a step, tactile paving with a corduroy hazard warning surface should be provided at the top and bottom of each flight. Where the approach to the stair is wider than the flight, the tactile surface should extend beyond the line of each edge of the flight. NOTE Further information on the correct choice of tactile warning surface can be found in the DTLR publication Guidance on the use of tactile paving surfaces.

Section

 read Alert has been designed to meet the requirements of “Guidance on the use of tactile paving surfaces” (see pages 140 T to 141 for details).

The LRV of a wall should be 30 points different from that of the ceiling and of the floor. To avoid giving the wrong impression about the size of a room, skirtings should have the same LRV as the wall so that the junction between the skirting and the floor marks the extent of the room.

 ll Gradus skirting colours have been measured to provide Light Reflectance Values* in order to provide the specifier with A information to ensure that the skirting can be matched to the wall and contrast with the floor.

* These values have been determined using the CIE Y value, in accordance with BS 8493:2008+A1:2010 – see pages 148 to 149 for further details.

BS 9266:2013 Design of accessible and adaptable general needs housing - Code of Practice. The requirements of a dwelling’s occupants can change as a result of accident, illness or ageing, giving rise to reduced mobility or increasing sensory loss. In order to meet these changing requirements, homes need to be accessible and adaptable; accessible for both visitors and residents and adaptable to meet residents’ changing needs both temporary and longer term. The standard outlines recommendations for design features which can be incorporated when the dwelling is first built, or have provision made at the outset for their future adaptation. This helps reduce the need for expensive or disruptive alterations or substantial adaptations in the future. This British Standard gives recommendations for methods of selection, planning, installation and maintenance for both stair nosings and barrier matting. Gradus advice and recommendations are shown in blue text.

The Building Regulations 2010 - Approved Document M “Access to and use of buildings” (2015 edition incorporating 2016 amendments – for use in England) The latest version of Approved Document M 2004 is stated ‘for use in England’. Current building standards should be checked at time of specification for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Approved Document M is split into two parts: •

Volume 1: Dwellings

Volume 2: Buildings other than dwellings

Volume 1 refers to Approved Document K for specific guidance notes on stair edgings (detailed on page 153). The below abstracts of guidance are taken from Volume 2.   Building owners have a legal duty to ensure all people can gain access to and use a building and its facilities. Approved documents are intended to provide guidance and much of the guidance in Approved Document M is based on BS 8300:2001. The main points relating to stair and stepped access that are detailed in Approved Document M are shown below, with supporting recommendation by Gradus shown in blue text.

Stepped Access 1-27 People with impaired sight risk tripping or losing their balance if there is no warning that steps provide a change in level.

 se of a stair edging that contrasts with the surrounding tread/riser material will help to clearly define the step edge and warn U of a change in level.

1-29 Materials for treads should not present a slip hazard, especially when the surface is wet.

Gradus provides a range of inserts for use in interior (dry and wet) and exterior conditions (see page 12).

1-30 People should easily be able to appreciate where to place their feet by highlighting nosings and avoiding open rises.

 se of a stair edging that contrasts with the surrounding tread/riser material will help to clearly define the step edge. Both the U insert and channel of the stair edging should be of a suitable contrast to the surrounding floor finishes. ADM directly refers to colour contrast in the definitions section stating that:

‘ Contrast visually, when used to indicate the visual perception of one element of a building, or fitting within the building, against another means that the difference in light reflectance value between the two surfaces is greater than 30 points.’

 ll Gradus stair edging colours have been measured to provide Light Reflectance Values* in order to provide the specifier with A information to ensure that suitable contrast is achieved with the surrounding stair material.

*These values have been measured using the CIE Y value in accordance with BS 8493:2008+A1:2010. See pages 148 to 149 for further details 1-33 (i) All nosings are made apparent by means of a permanently contrasting material 55mm wide on both the tread and the riser.

 he 55mm dimension detailed is guidance only and other factors should be taken into consideration when specifying stair T edgings such as step dimension, type and frequency of traffic. Communities and Local Government (formerly The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister) also acknowledges that advice given by other expert bodies should be taken into consideration, for example the RNIB Access Consultancy Services who state that the ideal dimension for a stair edging is 55mm on the tread and 30-50mm on the riser, which takes into account lower risers where a 55mm stair edging may take up a large proportion of the riser surface and therefore could be confusing for partially sighted people. If 55mm profiles are required they are available in the Gradus range (see pages 19, 20, 23, 26, 39, 40 and 41).

Entrance Lobbies 2-29 (e) Floor surface materials within the lobby do not impede the movement of wheelchairs e.g. not coir matting, and changes in floor materials do not create a potential trip hazard.

The majority of Gradus mats are suitable for use with wheelchairs.

2-29 (f) The floor surface helps to remove rainwater from shoes and wheelchairs.

A combination of Gradus primary and secondary barrier matting will help prevent the ingress of rainwater.

2-29 (g) where matwells are provided, the surface of the mat is level with the surface of the adjacent floor finish.

 radus offers a range of matwell frames and primary barrier mats designed to work together to provide a smooth transition to G the surrounding floor finish.

Corridors and Passageways 3-12 In order to help people with visual impairment to appreciate the size of a space they have entered, or to find their way around, there should be a visual contrast between the wall and floor.

 radus skirting profiles are available in a wide choice of colours and will provide a suitable colour contrast, helping define where G the floor ends and the wall begins.

Code of practice for the design of stairs with straight flights and winders

This standard provides guidance or good practice in the design of stairs with straight flights and winders. Gradus advice and recommendations are shown in blue text

4 Safety 4.7

Marked nosings

On a normal-use stair, each step or landing nosing should incorporate a permanently contrasting material for the full width of the stair on both the tread and the riser to help blind and partially sighted people appreciate the extent of the stair and identify individual treads. The material should be 50 mm to 65 mm wide on the tread and 30 mm to 55 mm on the riser, and should contrast visually with the remainder of the tread and riser.

NOTE Advice on visual contrast can be found in BS 8300:2009, Annex B.

All Gradus stair edging colours have been measured to provide Light Reflectance Values (LRVs)* in order to provide the specifier with information to ensure that suitable contrast is achieved with the surrounding stair material. PVC-u Hardnose stair edgings can provide an ideal solution as channel and insert colours can be matched to contrast with the tread and riser (see pages 38 to 43. *These values have been determined using the CIE Y value, in accordance with BS 8493:2008+A1:2010 – see page 148 for further details. The profile dimensions stated are guidance only and other factors should be taken into consideration when specifying stair edgings such as step dimension and type and frequency of traffic. However, a large proportion of Gradus stair edgings fall between these dimensions stated, including the XT range (see pages 19 to 20 and 39 to 40).

Slip resistance

Treads and landings should have a surface (and proprietary nosing, if provided) that does not become slippery in use.

Assessments in slip resistance should be undertaken using a combination of the following:

a) Pendulum test value (PTVs) obtained using a pendulum tester in line with BS 7976-2; and

b) Surface micro roughness measurements using a stylus instrument in accordance with BS 1134-1.

NOTE 1 Attention is drawn to the information found in the UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines [6].

NOTE 2 Any flooring material providing sufficient slip resistance for use on the level, typically with a PTV greater than 36, is suitable for use on stairs.

PTV should be measured in the conditions to which the stair is likely to be exposed.

If strips or inserts are used to improve the slip resistance of steps and stairs, they should be fitted as close possible to the leading edge of the tread and should be of a contrasting colour/brightness. An Rz roughness of 20 um or more is recommended. Such strips or inserts should be firmly fixed

NOTE 9 For further information on proprietary nosings see BRE IP 15/03 [7].

All Gradus stair edging inserts are independently tested for slip-resistance by the Health & Safety Laboratory using the pendulum test – all inserts have a low slip potential (inserts measured in dry conditions - PTV of between 66 and 70; inserts measured in wet conditions – PTV of between 55 and 64). All inserts are also tested for wear, surface roughness, chemical resistance and bacterial/fungal resistance (see page 147 for further details).

Section

The XT range of stair edgings features a slip-resistant pvc insert that extends around the leading edge of the profile to ensure that foot contact is always made with the slip-resistant element of the stair edging, providing the ideal solution for reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls on stairs in line with BRE. The XT range is available in aluminium (see pages 19 to 20) and PVC-u Hardnose (see pages 39 to 40). Permission to reproduce extracts from British Standards is granted by BSI Standards Limited (BSI).

BRE - Research and Guidelines BRE has published an information paper (ref. IP15/03) entitled “Proprietary nosings for non-domestic stairs�. This paper provides guidance to designers and building managers on the best way to assess the types of proprietary nosings that should be provided on non-domestic stairs. Gradus has combined the key findings of this report with in-house research and development, and as a result has developed the XT range of profiles. Detailed below is a overview and summary of the key findings in the BRE information paper.

Overview The study considered the dynamics of pedestrian stair use. Previous studies have shown that 80% of slips on stairs are likely to occur when users are descending the stairs. This usually occurs as a result of an overstep (i.e. when a substantial portion of the foot overhangs the tread). Therefore as the going (tread width) becomes narrower the likelihood of a slip incident becomes greater. Where the going is less than 300mm the risk of slip is increased. Most non-domestic stairs have a going of between 250mm and 280mm. The risk of slip is further increased if the tread surface is smooth, becomes wet or there is a lack of clear colour contrast at the step edge.

Conclusion The application of a proprietary nosing may reduce the risk of slipping against the factors highlighted above. The proprietary nosing should incorporate a slip-resistant material that should extend to the point at which it meets the vertical face to minimise the risk of slip in descent. Proprietary nosings should all offer a colour contrast to clearly highlight the step edge. Diagram to show how a typical overstep situation can occur when the going is less than 300mm.

300mm or less

Gradus recommendation The XT range of stair edgings (see pages 19 to 20 and 39 to 40) offers a new edge in safety for stairs and has been developed to take into account the latest guidance contained in the BRE information paper IP15/03, BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 and in The Building Regulations 2010 - Approved Document M.
